As we advised a few weeks ago, the NLRB reversed its egregious decision in Browning-Ferris and the definition of a joint-employer has reverted to the long accepted version of “direct and immediate control” over employees rather than the Obama-era “indirect and unexercised” control standard. Notwithstanding, proponents of retaining the 2015 definition continue to pursue avenues to maintain the looser definition. Last week, the Teamsters union filed a motion with the DC Court of Appeals asking the court to reconsider its remand of the issue to the NLRB. In addition, the union contends that the reversal of the Browning-Ferris decision was defective in “that board member William Emanuel should have recused himself from the case because his former law firm represented a company involved in the Browning-Ferris case.”
